Laurel, MD (February 15, 2020) – There is a line in the chorus of the hit “Song of the Night” that says, “I’m lost in the emptiness.” That’s how the rest of the field must have felt as Tommy Town Thoroughbreds’ Song of the Night left them in her wake by by double digits in the opener at Laurel Park.
The Tiznow filly was no secret to the crowd as she was sent off at 1/9 to win the six and one-half furlong maiden special weight over the main track. She did not disappoint. Breaking a step slowly from the inside post, she quickly moved up into the front of the field. Under no urging from jockey Trevor McCarthy the rest of the trip, she had a four length lead passing the half and doubled that to eight lengths at the top of the stretch. Geared down in the final furlong, her lead increased again and at the finish she was twelve and three-quarter lengths best.
Trained by Todd Beattie, the homebred is out of the Street Cry (IRE) mare, Northern Station. She is a half-sister to the multiple stakes winner Barbados.
